I was looking forward to this collection of fabrics for some time (prominent place on my wish list) and its even prettier in person. I keep taking them out of the packaging, then wrapping them back up, just so I can enjoy them again and again :).

Lovely colors, it took a keen eye to curate this collection. Thank-you!

The name banner turned out adorable and they were very nice about answering my endless questions. Fabric selections were great and look as expected. They were even able to work quickly in order to have it here in time.

Hand making baby name banners, fabric baby gifts, crochet amigurumi and scented softies all with LOVE!
Our shop has technically existed before...30 years ago to be exact when I was a baby.
Mother was not working at the time and has always been very crafty and good with a needle! She saw a personalised door plaque when visiting her friends house that she had just bought for her little girl. Mother had given me an unusual name so of course there was nothing available in the shops - mum simply decided to create something unique just for me!
Before long, her friends wanted one for their children and Kinderkraft took off down at Greenwich Market in London.
When she went back to work the making stopped and so did Kinderkraft! It was not until 2010 that I convinced her to teach me how to sew and to get the little business up and running again! Now not only do we enjoy the creativity that having our own ETSY shop inspires but we love getting our heads together and dreaming up new projects.
Kinderkraft is our hobby and we thoroughly enjoy it. The pleasure of making something that someone then chooses to buy is just wonderful and we love sending our creations out all over the world.
Together we create and hand make our unique name banners, amigurumi crochet animals and scented softies including scottie dogs, seahorses and rabbits.
More lately, I have become a mum myself and it is my little one that has inspired us to expand upon our baby related projects by producing a range of adorable nappy covers and burp cloths in stylish fabrics that parents will love!

Additional policies and FAQs
All of our creations are handmade in a smoke and pet-free environment.
Inside our scented softies we use aroma beads - we have found that these hold their scent for a long time. If you are sensitive to strongly scented items we can always create an unscented softie for you!
Choking Hazard Warning and Release of Liability:
Our creations are primarily intended as display pieces. They are not intended as toys. Each item is hand made and may contain small parts (like buttons, plastic eyes, etc.), which may be a choking hazard to young/small children.
Please note that on all our amigurumi creations we use safety eyes, which feature a clip on back designed not to come off again. However, there is a small risk of a safety eye becoming loose should the item be torn or damaged. Our creations are stuffed with hollowfibre filling which conforms to British Safety Standards.
Though no situation has occured to date please be very mindful of the above if you are planning to purchase a handmade creation for a child under the age of 3 years.
If so desired, Custom Orders can be baby-proofed as much as possible (eyes, buttons, etc. can be embroidered on).
